We bought a new refrigerator last spring. We finally joined the nineties and got one with an ice maker and water in the door. It periodically makes a noise like something out of Jurassic Park. Several times over the first few weeks, I thought I was a goner. I’d be standing at the kitchen sink with my back to the raptor-I mean the fridge. Remember that part in the movie where the chubby guy is trying to sneak top secret stuff off the island? And he doesn’t make it? Remember the sound those things made? Kind of a clackety-clack/whirring sound? Our fridge sounds just like that. I’m getting used to it. Instead of jumping out of my skin every time it happens, I’m just a little startled and I think about dinosaurs.
